About the property

Level, 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Fully Remodeled Cabin Close To All Amenities

Welcome to Buck's Cabin - a wonderfully remodeled and beautifully decorated home nestled in the pines. The perfect destination for year round fun in the Sierras or a quiet weekend getaway. You will enjoy the warmth and comfort of the European influenced decor. Reclaimed barn wood floors and ceilings, cedar beams, wainscoting and hand plastered walls create a distinctive ambiance to the cabin. Every detail was personally designed from custom cabinetry and furniture to artwork and collectibles. There is nothing 'typical' about this cabin.

The beds are wonderful 'European Sleepworks' mattresses with high end linens and down comforters. The kitchen is completely new with every convenience for preparing a lovely meal. There is a good sized deck with teak furniture and a top of the line gas BBQ.

The cabin is one story, located on a level street with a level driveway offering ease of access.

About Leal Buck

We are a family of three from Marin County who have been avid skiers in Tahoe for years. We recently discovered the incredible beauty of Summer and Fall in Tahoe and now love it equally all year.

Leal Buck purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Leal Buck chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

We appreciate the quick arrival time from the Bay Area to the first Truckee exit. Take a left at Northwoods and you are there. The amenities of Tahoe Donner were a big plus and the community there is wonderful. At any time of year...there is always something going on in Tahoe.

What makes this cabin unique

We looked for several years for a home we could make our own in Tahoe. This little gem provided the bones for a makeover and just the right size for inviting friends but not being overwhelmed with a large space. We love the trees that surround us and the sunny deck in Summer. We wanted a level driveway for Winter and a two car garage. Voila!

Gorgeous home!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful ski weekend here with another couple. The house is absolutely stunning. From the tasteful decor to the beautifully accommodated kitchen this house met all of our needs. We skied Squaw Valley and Northstar during the weekend we were here. Both resorts were less than a 20 minute drive away. We especially enjoyed the open kitchen and the steam shower in the master bathroom. The fireplace in the living room is so relaxing and the perfect end to a day on the slopes. The driveway was promptly plowed each morning and the walkway shoveled.

The owners of this home were an absolute pleasure to deal with. We would definitely return without any hesitation!

Another Unforgettable Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We came for snow and we certainly were not disappointed, but our stay in this fabulous home was the real treat. Decorated in full holiday cheer, ( thank you owners for making us feel so at home!) we relaxed, enjoyed the beautiful winter wonderland out every window, and the kids were able to snowboard and ice skate. We feel so comfortable here that we look forward to our next visit again.

Feels like a model home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was ideal for our family of four. Beautiful, comfortable, immaculate, and great owners to deal with. We never met but I feel Iike we are friends already! The photos show the house to be wonderful but honestly it was even nicer when we walked through the door. We are looking forward to our next stay in this home. The neighborhood is quiet, away from it all yet close to everything. I highly recommend this home without hesitation.

Wonderful Thanksgiving week

  • 5 of 5

Our first Thanksgiving on the West Coast was amazing thanks to finding this cozy, comfortable, peaceful "cabin." The kitchen was fully equipped, easy for various cooking tasks. The open floor plan allowed for great interaction between family members. Bedrooms and baths were very nicely appointed. We had 5 people, but could accommodate 6 very comfortably. The fireplace and living room provided a chance for complete relaxation. It wasn't quite ski season yet, but this house would be great for a winter getaway.

Truckee is a short drive down the hill, meeting all your shopping and dining needs. We recommend the Cottonwood restaurant and Namaste Yoga with Mary Beth.

Owner's Response: We so appreciate your generous comments and the tip about Namaste Yoga. Winter skiing is terrific! Summer and Fall offer incredible opportunities for great hiking and amazing outdoor activities so come back for a visit anytime :)
